I'd love a companion series that was told from a multiplicity of views so I could develop the whole world more in my mind.

One evening, while unable to fall asleep, I started drafting it in my head. I've always wondered where he went just after leaving Bella in the woods. I can't imagine him not staying around to make sure that she handled the first few days okay, but I guess I'm giving him credit for more control than he has. If he'd done that, he wouldn't have made it all that far. Apparently, he couldn't handle the anguish of being anywhere near her, and so he ran off somewhere far enough away that he couldn't hear of her. I always envisioned one of those runs like the ones in MS, but longer, perhaps across northern Canada to the ocean on the East Coast. That would take him a good week or longer, and would kill some time while keeping him from thinking too much. Perhaps he spent time with the members of his family who would encourage him to stay away, like Carlisle, Emmett, and Rosalie. Perhaps he tried the stoic route like he did in MS when he was trying to stay away from her - he moved with his family, acted as lookout, did his duty, and just tried to bear the pain. Or lastly, maybe he threw himself into tracking immediately with an intense fervor, hoping that the task at hand would prevent him from thinking about Bella too much.
I'm sure Esme and Alice were against his decision to leave Bella, and I'm pretty sure Jasper would be too, but I'm not certain there. Like Bella, I have a hard time predicting Jasper's reactions. Anyone have a guess?
I'll cross-post this to the New Moon extras forum as well - it's more appropriate there.
Thanks for listening. -Ariadnee
